100 Basket Blocks on the wall...... Take One Down, Sew it Around....
You know the song, right? Well I have changed it a bit, but you get the idea. I finished the last of the 100 basket blocks needed for the Lil' Baskets Quilt on Sunday. It was great to finally get them all done - I can't decide which is my favorite - I like all the colors!
There is something about muliples of small blocks that appeals to us. Like Dear Jane, etc., right? Here are most of them spread out on the guest room bed before I started sewing them together. So pretty!
The quilt from the book (Scrappy Firework Quilts by Edyta Sitar) uses a smaller print in the plain blocks.
You can see how they look on my design wall with the brown blocks and the rust colors set-in triangles.
Thankfully we didn't get any of the snow that fell on part of the northeast! It is a beautiful, sunny day here and hopefully these images will be a distant memory!
What a winter!!!!!
